one week ago from the obama administration's self-labeled war room, where officials focus on implementing the law and their concern is that once the healthcare.gov website glitches are worked out, some consumers will go online and be disappointed with high prices and limited choice. according to the notes from october 28th, quote, mike described a general concern of p.m. or project management, quote, getting to the point where the website is functioning properly and individuals begin to select plans, the media attention will follow individuals to plan selection and their ultimate choices and in some cases, there will be fewer options than would be desired to promote consumer choice and an ideal shopping experience. additionally, in some cases, there will be relatively high cost plans. project management is a reference to those individuals in the obama administration tasked with standing up the affordable health care law at the center for consumer information and insurance oversight. the discussion appeared to be in reference to an october 24th story by the "new york times"

.n. in the year 2007. it was endorsed by the obama administration in the year 2010, and as i mentioned, today 150 nations around the world have endorsed the declaration. it contains the authentic aspirations of indigenous peoples because indigenous peoples wrote this document and negotiated it through the u.n.. it took them almost 30 years to do it, but they did. and if you read this declaration, the 46 articles and the carless at the beginning of it, you will see that it reflects our native american aspirations, all of the issues and concerns that we have as tribal people, tribal leaders, tribal attorneys, law professors all of our issues are entranced in some shape or form in this comprehensive declaration. the standards are therefore very comprehensive in nature. the address the full range of native american issues and aspirations providing a complete framework for looking at the content and nature of our property rights, political rights, civil rights, economic rights social rights, religious rights and environmental rights. at the core of the framework is the indigenous human right to self-d
kerry's mission on sunday to deliver a message from the obama administration about what washington expects cairo to do in the weeks and months ahead. >> how can the united states reconcile working with the government and supporting the move to democracy? >> basically, let's put it this way - the trip was unannounced. in diplomatic terms that is in essence denying egypt the ability to say, "look, the united states is in support of what we have been doing here politically in the past five months." by having the unannounced trip the u.s. sent a message that it disapproves of what has happened. that said, the u.s. is making it plain, and we heard this from secretary kerry on sunday that the u.s. looks to egypt as a security partner across the middle east. they had a long-standing military relationship - egyptian soldiers and generals training here and attending high-level think tanks for professional education. it looks to egypt to maintain stability particularly across the border with israel with whom it has a peace treaty, and also so insurgent groups don't find a foot hole. >> egypt
, obama administration how do they respond from that and what do they want from him? >> i think the administration is interested in exploring this intelligence assistance, the u.s. knows that it has a problem as it sees the growth of al qaeda in northeast syria, and the resurgence of al qaeda in iraq, it really looked like it had been all by extinguished during the time of the u.s. troop surge and general petraeus's command there. it is strange, iraq must be the only country in the world that today would like more nsa surveillance on its territory, but they literally want to know where these people are and how to target them. i think the u.s. is -- they know maliki, maliki has been a disappointment to u.s. special, as ajami suggests we went way too forward with him, he was a petty tyrant, some years ago but now as the worm turns, here is maliki in washington looking for help and in this case, there are reasons why the u.s. ought to give him some help because it is in our interest. >> rose: a group of snawrs wrote to the president accused him of failure of governance that contrib

, 50% say they do not know enough. on this issue, in many ways obama administration has won. >> one, the truth is it's a representative picture. it's true about here are the stories and the question is how many people are listening, right? >> right. >> the bigger question is what's the story that will get people to listen. how many stories will get people to listen. what will change the calculus. it's unclear. think of al gore's inconvenient truth, the power of that movie ten years ago and how it sort of got a lot of talking in the media and seemed like a really big deal. 10 years later how many americans are like going crazy about global warming. how much of an impact. >> the intruth about this issue is the obama administration is dramatically downplaying the number of civilians killed. when journalists follow up and go to the scene of these hits, the first time obama authorized a strike against yemen in 2009, the white house claimed yemen had done the strike. we know from wikileaks cables that's a flagrant lie, the u.s. was behind it. they killed 36 women and children in the strik

arabia's unhappiness with the obama administration burst into full flower as we recall a couple of weeks ago with blind quotes and attributed quote to its intelligence chief voicing such displeasure over the u.s. what they see as president obama's flip-flop on whether or not to strike syria over chemical weapons, for one. and two, it's now very vigorous pursuit of negotiations with iran. so for saudi t is really all about the big struggle for power in the region between itself and iran. and there's definitely a doubt about the steadfastness of the u.s.. >> ifill: so is it real anger or diplomatic anger? >> that's much debated. there is real anger on the issues and you heard that from the foreign minister today, who really ticked them off. and he said at one point there are ticking time bombs that cannot just be managed and managed endlessly. about syria and iran. but i'm reliably told that the sawed saudies despite the threats in the earlier stories, they don't plan to try to totally go-it-alone in funding and giving arms to rebels in syriament because they think only the u.s. actually h
